"Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies who has been especially close to some one here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who has been left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks in the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
